Journal Citation Reports and Other Tools for Preparing Your Dossier Workshop

Don’t know the difference between an impact factor and an Eigenfactor? Not sure how to find out which journals in your field are the best? Then you might want to come to an upcoming workshop called "Journal Citation Reports and Other Tools for Preparing Your Dossier". This workshop is designed for faculty and graduate students who want to learn more about the citation tools available to help them. We'll cover how to use Journal Citation Reports more effectively. Realizing that not every journal in the Journal Citation Reports, other tools will also be covered. These tools include Publish or Perish, Google Scholar, and WorldCat Identities. At the end of this session we hope you'll have:

• Awareness of the different tools available
• Understanding of the value of these different citation analysis tools
• Ability to select the best tool for any given task
• Understanding of vocabulary like impact factors
• Skills to gather citation information and include them in their promotion documents

This workshop will be helpful for all disciplines. In fact it's going to be led by a Humanities Librarian and a Science Librarian!
